Summer is here. It means more time with friends, family, and pests!
I hope I’m not alone in recent battles against some pesky little critters… wait, I do hope I’m alone so no one has to deal with what we have been dealing with the past few weeks!
At our old house we had an ant problem but at our new house we’ve had an entirely different issue… fleas!
Warm winter = pesky pest party!
With the warm winter we had, there were hardly any freezes so it seems like the pests are at record levels. In our neighborhood and the ones around us, we have been battling a flea invasion! We were hoping to escape without having any issues but were not that lucky. After spending a chunk of change on additional treatment for our yard, we are now on a very limited budget when it comes to home repair and maintenance for the next few months.
Fleas aren’t the only little pests we see sneaking around inside and outside our house so I have been looking into alternatives for calling in the big guns again. Ants are the number one pests that will invade homes this summer (source: National Pest Management Association) so I would recommend that you take some proactive steps to prevent an attack.
In the past we have used a number of Amdro products to battle ants and roaches. Yes, I said roaches. Yes, I shuddered. They might be the worst of them all! Thankfully Amdro helps fight the battle and keep the bugs outside where they belong!
In addition to the versatile line of products offered by Amdro, there are a number of easy things you can do to protect your home. Our new house is actually an older home that was built in 1969 so there are a few things we need to do like caulk our windows, seal cracks, and remove debris that can provide shelter for different types of insects and other pests.
If you’re like us and are looking to start “building the barrier” (as my mom says), Amdro has a line of solution-oriented products that are designed for a diverse range of specific insect issues, application needs, and plant types. The Amdro Ant Block Home Perimeter Ant Bait kills 15 varieties of ants and you can use it on your lawn, landscaping, and around all of the buildings on your property. That kind of protection and versatility is exactly what I’m looking for because I’m a busy mom who doesn’t want to run around buying a ton of different products! Time is precious!
You can learn about the entire line of Amdro products and find one to fit your needs at www.amdro.com. If you’re a huge social media fan like me, you can also learn more about Amdro on Facebook and follow on Twitter @AMDROassistance!
